This section is probably more stream of consciousness/disorganized
than need be:
Foucault's Pendulum, Dune, Lord of Light, Bolano, Gravity's
Rainbow, anything by Martin Amis, The Brothers Karamazov, Bonfire
of the Vanities, Reasons and Persons.
Moby Dick is the best book ever written. At least in English.
I read Swann's Way recently and really liked it. Am about to start
Savage Detectives and have high hopes.
Also a large blog consumer.
Although I really enjoy Korean or Indian food, nothing will ever
replace my deep abiding love for smoked fish.
I've been playing violin since the age of 10. I have a New Years
resolution to master a movement of a concerto.
Dvorak, Shostakovich, Bartok, Mozart, Mahler, Ravel, Chopin, the
Clash, REM, The Cure, Pet Shop Boys, My Bloody Valentine, Dinosaur
Jr., Joy Division, Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, Aphex Twin, Tame
Impala, anything pitchfork tells me (recently, DIIV, Future
Islands, Beach House).
Iain Curtis is one of the greatest lyricists ever, I think. Like on
TS Eliot's level.
If you want to go to a concert, classical or otherwise, I will
definitely be interested. I really love live music and have major
amounts of fun seeing a band that I've never heard of (and will
likely only be kinda ok).
I have a soft spot for older comedies like Woody Allen films and
Airplane. Blazing Saddles and Love and Death are some of the
funniest movies ever made. A Serious Man is just my life story. I
have really mixed feelings on Wes Anderson and Game of Thrones (I
feel like that should go under "Most private thing I'm willing to
David Lynch, even his version of Dune. Twin Peaks is one of the
best things ever put on television. I also like body horror...like
Cronenberg stuff from the 80s. The Room.
Favorite places, outside the contiguous United States, in no
particular order: Hong Kong, Madrid, Tokyo, Orccha (India), Leh
(also India), Granada, Xinjiang, Montreal.
